Our Team

Jodie Franks

Hi! My name is Jodie Franks and I am from London. I am so excited to be part of the 21/22 Sabbatical team! I will be focusing on Jewish engagement and enrichment and would love to hear new ideas from you. I have been involved in UJS since my first year at the University of Leeds. My time on the Jsoc committee as the University Chair allowed me to run events and activities for Jewish students, and I went on to partner with Jami on a campus well-being project. During my last year at university, I was a member of the UJS national council and trustee board, and now I can’t wait to keep working with students, and enabling every Jewish student to feel religiously fulfilled at university.


J-Socs (Jewish Societies) I work with: 
Campus sessions I can run:  

Introduction to Jewish Spirituality - available in person and on Zoom

This session will explore our spiritual side, understanding the Jewish concepts of spirituality, the soul, and kaballah (Jewish mysticism). Be ready to think and be challenged!  


I don't know what to do! - available in person and on Zoom

This session will look at the methodology to making a decision, from perspectives of a psychologist, Rabbi and ancient sources. We will also run through some scenarios for you to choose from!
